    Back in full force, your weekly update on what's new and hot in Cydia. Today we've got WiFiBooster, AirServer, SMSEnhancer, Homescreen Settings and iFinder.

    WiFi Booster
    Malcolm Hall


    This is one of my favorite new tweaks as far as WiFi tweaks go. WiFi Booster is a tweak design to improve the native settings app designated for WiFi. The tweak adds additional information to WiFi information, and allows you to see all networks in range by removing the signal level limit. Much like what you see in apps like WiFiFoFum, this allows you to access many more networks than normal. Granted most may not work, however its nice and tidy tucked away ...

    Research firm comScore released a new service called "Device Essentials" which allows digital traffic to be monitored by device, and according to their study the iPad is responsible for 89% of tablet internet traffic.

    I guess Jobs wasn't too far off with his greater than 90% of the market comments.

    The study analyzed the amount of non-computer traffic in a number of countries as well. Canada ...

    There are already tweaks in Cydia Store such as MarkThatMessage and Cyntact that offer services that give you contact photos and timestamps. Cyntact however is just for the Contacts.app and MarkThatMessage is strictly for the Messages.app. SMSEnhancer takes both those features and incorporates them into one and places it into the Messages.app.

    SMSEnhancer, by Alexandros Melakis (@melakis), tweaks the Messages.app conversation windows to show timestamps and contact photos of those in the ...

    A recent article from iLounge indicates that one of the major reasons for the relatively low amount of peripherals that implement the two most significant Apple standards released this year, AirPlay which debuted back in September 2010, and Thunderbolt, which first arrived on the Mac with the release of the revised MacBook Pro in February, may be from the high price Apple demands in licensing these ...

    Final Cut Pro X requires users to be on a Mac that ...

    I never bought a case for my first iPhone back in 2007, but I did smack a screen protector on before even leaving the Apple Store. Apparently, I'd be viewed as a minimalist compared to most mobile phone owners.

    Geekaphone has done it again. This time they used some data collection and analysis wizardry to dissect the phenomena of mobile phone accessories.

    In the last nine months $497 million has been ...

    The backlash against Apple's new version of Final Cut Pro has been harsh to say the least in the 48 hours since FCP X's release. It stands as the most poorly rated piece of first-party software in the online Apple store, and has been pegged as "iMovie Pro" by many professionals.

    Apple just released iOS 5 beta 2 for those fortunate enough to have a developer account. Or those of you who care enough to find the firmware through the necessary back channels.

    The release notes from Apple highlight only one new known feature, the ability to finally sync your iDevice wirelessly via Wi-Fi syncing. The beta is available for the iPPhone 4, 3GS, 4th Gen iPod Touch, iPad, ...

    Try as they might, Apple can't hide everything. Although the notoriously secretive company rarely dishes on unannounced projects, sometimes they don't have to for us to pick up on clues regarding forthcoming product releases, refreshes, or updates. The latest nugget of knowledge comes from the first beta of iOS 5.

    According to a developer at iFans, references to an "iPod 4,2" have been ...
